January 2017’s Xbox Live Games with Gold Titles Unveiled

Another month means another handout hand out of games for Xbox One and Xbox 360 owners who have Xbox Live.

January 2017’s offerings aren’t the best, but they’re not too bad either. Have a gander below to see what’s up for grabs:

Xbox One

World of Van Helsing: Deathtrap – Available for the whole month


A new release, World of Van Helsing: Deathtrap is a tower defence game with strong RPG elements. Developed by Neocore Games, creators of The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing series, the fact that it features a co-op campaign and loot may pique the interest of a gamer or two.

Complementing the Season 1 Ultra Edition which was given away last January, Killer Instinct Season 2 Ultra Edition adds a further 8 characters, 8 costumes, and 16 premium accessory packs into the mix. Oh, and Killer Instinct 2 Classic is thrown in too.

Xbox 360 (also compatible with Xbox One)

The Cave – Available Jan 1st to Jan 15th

Putting you in charge of assembling a team of three explorers from a pool of seven before heading into the depths to discover untold mysteries, The Cave is a fantastic adventure game from Ron Gilbert, the creator of Monkey Island – need I say more?

Rayman Origins – Available Jan 16th to Jan 31st

One of the last generation’s best games in our opinion, this colourful platformer featuring everyone’s favourite, er….Rayman…is an absolute blast. Make sure to grab Rayman Origins while you can if you don’t already own it.
